Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific and Local Organising Committees we extend an invite to come and join us in Szeged, Hungary for our next EuroDURG Scientific Meeting in 2020.  Our conference theme is Medicines: benefits and burden and we will be exploring the policy and practice response to current and evolving therapies.

The European Branch of the ISPE Special Interest Group for Drug Utilisation Research is in the midst of designing an attractive, interactive educational and scientific programme reaching out to our networks both in Europe and internationally.   We will start with a half day of educational sessions, building on our successful summer school in June 2019, followed by a dynamic range of plenary sessions on: multimorbidity and the evolving challenge of polypharmacy; innovative medicines; emerging data capabilities and antimicrobial resistance – a One Health Approach.  These will be interspersed with workshops, seminars and thematic sessions to allow our community to engage, develop and test our evolving DUR trajectory to improve the real world use of medicines. 

We hope you will come and join us, submit your work for poster/oral presentation and enjoy this EuroDURG family event. Our tradition has been to combine great scientific content with social events to support networking, meeting new colleagues / old friends and experience a bit of the local country culture: the Hungarian cuisine, the beautiful architecture, folk dance and the atmosphere of Szeged.

We look forward to seeing you in Szeged.
